400km so far and no major troubles.

Today the speedo rolled over 400 electric kilometers.

There have been no significant problems, just some minor niggles.

I am confident that as long as the batteries live up to expectation I will get many 1000's of EV kilometers.

Minor changes include:
  • Replacing one battery due to a loose terminal.
  • Replacing 2 x Zener balance circuits due to mismatch.
  • Adding a series resistor to the 7 solenoids because they were getting too hot.
  • Adding an electric fan to the motor to cool it down after long up hill stretches.

Great stuff!
So I reckon ~400km you are still not completely beyond the Greensaver's brake-in period, right? If that's not already above ~20 full charges.
